Rogue Pawn (in Development)
A downloadable game for Windows
Now in Active Development
Originally created for Ludum Dare 41: "Combine 2 Incompatible Genres"
Now in active development for commercial release
The rogue-lite genre meets chess in this open world game inspired by classic Zelda and the Dark Souls games, among endless rogue-like/rogue-lite games.
As you use Chess-based attacks in real-time combat, take down the skeletal army, collect "glory" from enemies, and keys from bosses to unlock new gear, attack powers, and upgrades!

Watched some gameplay from the Ludum Dare. So keen for a Mac release let alone an updated release since the Ludum Dare.
This game looks so awesome, hoping for a port to Mac or Linux!!! If you need any help developing wise, I'd love to contribute.
I just played through the game and i absolutely loved it it does get easy after you know all the patterns but, what if you could come up with new types of pieces to spice it up? that would be cool or do a dlc that takes place during the future after midevil times possibly sci-fi based that indroduces new pawns while keeping some old. just throwing some things in the ring. I really hope to see this game take off. ( :
It's supposed to be chess so a sci-fi wouldn't really make since.
also a pawn is the thing you play as, the enemies are other chess pieces.
